AbstractBackgroundRates of colectomy for ulcerative colitis have been decreasing, particularly since the advent of biologics, but the subsequent impact of reduced colectomy rates on the development of neoplasms in chronically treated ulcerative colitis colons is unknown.PurposeTo determine trends in colectomy for colorectal neoplasms in adult patients with ulcerative colitis.MethodsAdult admissions with ulcerative colitis were identified from the National Inpatient Sample from 1993 to 2015. The rate of colectomy with concurrent colorectal neoplasm served as the primary outcome and was evaluated using time trend linear and ...

CONCLUSIONS: Our cumulative findings support the use of SILS or SILS+1 in patients with colorectal cancer. The long-term oncologic outcomes make them acceptable technical alternatives to conventional multiport laparoscopic colectomy. Further trials are still needed to fully document the non-cosmetic benefits. PMID: 32196563 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Adequate lymphadenectomy is associated with improved survival in patients who undergo oncologic resection of colorectal cancer and has been identified as a quality metric. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy has been found to be associated with collection of 12 lymph nodes. Of 9077 patients with a diagnosis of colon cancer who underwent colectomy, a minimum of 12 lymph nodes was harvested in 7897 (87%). Significant factors independently associated with inadequate lymphadenectomy included preoperative chemotherapy, emergent surgery, and T1 tumors (all P

Chemoprevention offers an attractive option to prevent the occurrence of cancer in high risk cancer syndromes, such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and Lynch syndrome. However, data, especially from clinical trials, is sparse. This presentation will review the state of art concepts of chemoprevention in regards to these hereditary GI cancer syndromes.Lynch Syndrome: In the randomized CAPP2 trial, 861 participants with Lynch syndrome took either daily aspirin (600 mg) or placebo for up to 4 years; the primary endpoint was the development of CRC (1). After a mean follow-up of 55.7 months, participants taking daily as...

Authors: Vecchio R, Intagliata E, Basile F, La Corte F, Marchese S Abstract Laparoscopic colorectal surgery for cancer is nowadays performed in several referral centers and has been gaining increasing interest for treatment of colo-rectal cancer. After the introduction of complete mesorectal excision for rectal cancer, complete mesocolic excision has been advocated as an essential surgical step to improve oncologic results for patients with colon cancer. Complete mesocolic excision is a crucial step of hemicolectomy, and consists in the total removal of the mesocolon and its lymph nodes with high ligation of main m...
